Of course, you can't include multi-byte chars in there.  However, you
can use single-byte chars initially and substitute them with their
multi-byte equivalents (or non-equivalents, if you use unrelated
placeholder chars initially) in filter() of the same external mode
(you'd need to add that filter() function of your own), or you can use
an external program (such as another instance of john) to perform the
substitution in a pipe.
